Restoration Effort for Norwood House
The city of Austin is moving toward remaking a historic property on Riverside Drive. For this week’s Changing Austin, KUT’s Matt Largey talked about the Norwood House near the intersection of I-35 and Riverside with Marty Stump from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
Norwood Park, as a park site, is really on the verge of change. We have the boardwalk, which is about to go under construction along the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake. This site provides opportunity for connectivity to the boardwalk, so the house and the grounds could function as a neighborhood trailhead. Likewise, urban rail is being planned in the long term here for Riverside Drive.
